An Autumn Walk

Mummy and daddy at the start of their tramp.

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Early on Saturday morning, mummy and daddy abandoned left Us three and went off in Mummy’s little white car.  87 hours later they came home, very tired, with muddy feet  and moaning about sore muscles.  As if We all cared.  It would appear that they had been on a 15 km (nearly 9 miles) tramp up (in as one would say in New Zealand) the wop wops.  Which in this case was 30k (18 miles) up the road to almost the end of the Mangamahu Valley.

Lunch time was at an abandoned old farm-house, referred to by the locals as Siberia because of its remoteness.

Stunning scenery.  Now you can all see why We live in the sunny Mangamahu Valley.  Love from Nellie, Jasper and Itai, who by the way are sick of listening to mummy and daddy groaning about how sore they are and how their legs hurt.

  2. That was a very cool adventure! Personally, I think you should so all sorts of sympathy towards them so you can score extra treats!

  3. Aren’t you glad you were abandoned and didn’t have to walk 87 K 2day!?

  4. I can’t believe they left you kids behind. You could’ve done 9 miles with your eyes closed and one paw tied behind your back. And you would NOT come home complaining.

    Love and licks,

    Reblogged this on The Woolshed Wargamer and commented:
    It was more like 21km and 12km of it was uphill. In a few of the pictures you can see the old Coach Road (abandoned nearly a century ago) that serviced the remote hill farms. They were abandoned when a new road was cut along the river valley in the mid-20s.

    And we were sore the next few days.

    I’m sorry they were gone so long. I’m sure you feel it takes them years to get the mail too! They saw some very cool old buildings. (They like to go on adventures as well). Happy napping!
